Recycling and Waste Facilities - Scotland

Most councils will keep a record of their recycling and waste management facilities. Therefore we have tried to compile these into a consistent national layer.

The layer contains Recycling Places (including locations of bins and centres) and Waste Management Sites (including transfer centres and current/historic landfill sites). Both are a point layer (any provided polygons will have a centroid created).

This dataset was amalgamated, optimised and published by the Spatial hub. The following quality assurance checks and corrections are carried out on the data: - Polygons are not dissolved/ aggregated by key name and local authority. - The minimum polygon area allowed in the data is 1 square metres - Checks for invalid geometry types - The maximum angle for any spikes is 3 degrees - Any duplicate geometry is removed from the data - Duplicate key names for polygons are not removed - Polygons with no key names are not removed - Checks for basic geometry i.e. self-intersection Please contact spatialhub@improvementservice.org.uk for more details.
